"I want one!"

I’ve been working in my studio for a few months, and the reaction from clients has been so positive!

Along with the wonderful compliments on the style and craftsmanship, my favorite response was “I want one”! Meaning, a calm and restorative space that can be used for multiple purposes that is detached from the dwelling in which you live. I wish everyone had a little house to create and relax, inspire and excite.

Luc recently asked if I thought I might eventually tire of working in the studio. The answer is no. I love it so much. With the simplification of my life came the desire (and time) to take more classes on cutting, coloring and styling. Even though I feel accomplished in my field, there is always more to learn and new ways of achieving beauty and confidence. This move has allowed me to focus more on connecting with my creativity and to hone my craft.

I have recently taken a full day barbering class here in Portland and will be taking a two day razor cutting seminar in the Bay Area at the end of April. I’m super excited to head down there with my haIr bestie, Elys, so we can get our learn on.

I hope everyone is having a great spring!



The new green.

green. is changing. We are now a small one person studio, with attention to progression and style in the Pacific Northwest.

Style is paramount, with precision hair cutting lending to easy daily styling. Sustainable products and practices make way for beauty to take center stage, naturally.

We still focus on sustainability, but this ideal is much easier to realize as a one chair studio. The space is much more eco-friendly, with all new windows and doors. The smaller space is easier to heat, especially with our European wood stove, and also easier to cool, with our mini-split heating and cooling system.

green. is closing

Dear Clients,

green. will be closing at the end of the year.

When we opened the salon almost 10 years ago, we wanted to create a space where clients, stylists, estheticians and managers would enjoy coming. We had many years of success and the journey has been rewarding. However, we have a year to year lease on the building without a long term option, and the landscape of Portland has changed dramatically.

The decision was not made lightly. We realize this change will impact all of you, and change can be challenging in whatever form it takes. But it is also an exciting time.

We have chosen to simplify our lives, so my husband and I are building a little salon in the detached garage behind our home. It will just be a one woman show, in a great space, with a couple of dogs running around.

We hope you will continue to support your stylist and/or esthetician in their next endeavor. If they haven’t already, they will be letting you know where to find them.

We want to thank each and every one of you for your support. It’s been a great ride.

Cheers to ten great years!


Patti Green and the green. team
